When Alex Bartholomew popped the question, his photos show a tornado in the background — just like he wanted. Here's hoping they're not in for a stormy marriage.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. So if you go on Alex Bartholomew's Facebook page, you'll see some photos of him proposing to his girlfriend. Behind him, there's a picturesque Texas landscape and a tornado, which was exactly how Alex wanted it. He's a storm chaser. And he wanted nothing more than to go down on one knee and pop the question with a potentially deadly twister right in the shot. Believe it or not, she said yes. Here's hoping she's not in for a stormy marriage. It's MORNING EDITION.
